Discover Home Farm

A red Devon cow at Home Farm, Kinston Lacy

This is your chance to meet the ruby red Devon cattle who help us look after the Kingston Lacy estate just as the first calves of the year are born.

Wander around Home Farm, near the kitchen garden, and get close to the cows and their calves.

Then trace the history of the herd through a display in our grade II listed cow shed.

Ruby red Devons were brought to Kinston Lacy by Walter Bankes in the nineteenth century and continue to play an important role today.

Their grazing helps us manage the estate for wildlife and visitors.

Discover Home Farm is open on weekends from 16 January to 28 February from 11am-3pm and daily 13-21 February. There is no extra charge for admission.
